DURABRAND 2.0 CH USB COMPUTER SPEAKERS

I recently purchased some Durabrand 2.0 CH USB COMPUTER SPEAKERS at Wal-mart. I had recently updated my Dell Computer to run on a new Windows XP Home Edition I operating system. My computer does not have internal speakers so I installed the purchased speakers and I attached them to my computer with the USB connection and the green connection cord to the sound card. All I hear coming from the speakers is a scratchy sound like just air. It could be that I might have to update the driver to the sound card, which I did from the device manager in the computer; but that did not work. I also tried the speakers from the Dell computer at work and they work just fine without me having to change anything on the computer at work. So, does this mean, I need to do some changes or downloads to my computer?...I need help.

    I purchased the same product a few days ago. I hear the audio alright, however there is a constant scraching/ static noise when there is no audio.
    the only way to stop is to remove the usb cable/ audio cable

I work at a church as a Systems Administrator, and when I came here, there were 2 pairs of the speakers sitting around, one still in the box, I would assume ready to be used. I've also discovered that several of our users have these same speakers on their desk. On every pair I've tried, on all different computers, old Compaqs, to new Dells, to a brand new custom built computer, and even on a Mac, they all produce the same nasty, scratchy static, even with the volume turned all of the way down. In short, I would say this: these Durabrand speakers are total garbage. If you can, just return them to Walmart. For probably 5 bucks more at Walmart or elsewhere (check newegg.com or tigerdirect.com), you can get some real speakers that actually work. I bought some $16 Altec Lansings on Tiger Direct to replace these. To repeat: don't bother with the Durabrand USB powered speakers!

Try going to control panel, the system icon, hardware tab, divice manager, check to see if your sound card does not have a yellow ! icon next to it, if it does try right click, go to properties, and reinstalling it, it does help if the computer is hooked to the internet so it can find it automaticly over the internet.

I recently purchased Durabrand 2.0 CH USB computer speakers at Wal-Mart. When I hooked them up to my computer all I got was a sound like a scratchy sound. My computer does not have internal speakers and may not have a sound driver installed either. This is a company computer so I can't do alot of downloading. So what or is there a best way for me to get my new speakers up and running.

The speakers may not be compatible with your sound card. Check your devices for the sound card that you currently have, and then look it up online to assure compatibilty -- if the speakers worked on another computer, this may be the problem.

I hope that this helps.

My durabrand pdv 709 dvd player's screen went black and wont come


It sounds like you have a circuit overloading. But, is this one of the Durabrand models that have been recalled by Durabrand/Wal-Mart? They recalled most or all DVD players built since 2006 because they have a tendency to overheat and catch fire. Look into it by calling your local Wal-Mart.

Ink from wal-mart


Like any other product, there will sometimes be defective cartridges. Take the one back your printer is complaining about back to Wal-Mart and exchange it as defective. They'll just send it back to the manufacturer. (Sometimes it's easy to overlook the possibility a new part is bad. It's a real pain when that happens, but it does.)

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD


This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.

Bought Durabrand portable 9inch dvd model PDV-709 malmart Alexandria Lousiana January 2008 the picture is not working properly took it in to New zealand registered electronics dealer he said problem is it...


the 1 year is with the manufacturer contact them and make them fix/replace it look in your packaging for a 800 contact #, i found this on the net...

Durabrand was first started in early 2003 as a brand only made for Wal-Mart stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, as a generic brand for electronics, but has grown to be available near-internationally (due to Wal-Mart's global reach). The products are marked for only Wal-Mart stores and available in very few other stores than Wal-Mart. Its name, Durabrand, was named that to mean durability at a low price. Like most generic brands, Durabrand is a chain of different manufacturers. Durabrand is chained with Lenoxx Sound, Alco, Funai (which would also include Emerson, Sylvania, and Symphonic), Orion, Maxell, Resonance, Initial Technology, and many other different companies. The prices of a majority of their products are often considered loss leaders.
